iHEARTMEDIA Top 40 KDWB/MINNEAPOLIS morning show star and iHEARTRADIO talent mentor DAVE RYAN has taken one more challenge. He's written a book.
"It's all about life-lessons I learned the hard way, that I'm passing along to save people the trouble of making the same mistakes I did," said RYAN. "For example, when I loaned a friend $1,000 and never saw it again, BOOM! Lesson learned! I cover everything from appreciating your parents, the power of saying 'No', and the importance of the Courtesy Flush."
"Take a Shower, Show Up on Time and Don't Steal Anything (And Other Sh*t I've Learned the Hard Way) is RYAN's first book to be published, although it's not the first one he's written.
"I wrote a book about 15 years ago and then sat on it until someone else beat me to market with the exact same idea. Even the title was nearly identical. My fault for not moving on a good idea, which is lesson #20 of #101 in my book. If you have a great idea, take action on it before someone else does it first."
RYAN touches on some of life's missteps, saying, "I've screwed up a lot in my life, including my first big mistake at the age of four when I tried to get attention in a really wrong way. I tell you all about it in the book. Am I done making mistakes? Uhhhhhh, no. I've got a ton more to make, but it's not likely I'll make the same ones again. Once was enough."
